Happiness is fresh flowers…

I so enjoy having fresh flowers my house. They make me happy and giggly and of course I love to capture them with my camera.
I was thrilled, when I saw that the Ranuculus was here. I love capturing all their layers. They are just so amazingly beautiful.

What brings you happiness?

serenity | my zen | june 2017

serenity
noun, plural serenities.
1. the state or quality of being serene, calm, or tranquil; sereneness.

To me that means getting out my camera and getting in that Zen mode. You know the place... where you forget time and space and starting being - northing else. Photography does that to me. Not only capturing my own art - but also getting lost in other photographer's work. (I have a few photographers, whose work, I absolutely adore. Blog post coming about that later).

I just love that feeling of just being. Absolutely paused in that moment - not dwelling on the past or worried about the future - just right here, right now. Photography gives me that.

What is your zen? What brings you serenity? 

I bout this different lilies Friday afternoon. I was instantly attracted to their curves and ruffles. I captured them different days over the weekend to watch them unfold. I am involve with these lilies.
